Just arrived in, there is definitely plenty to talk about when it comes to the new Adidas X16+ PURECHAOS including how easy they are to slip into and what exactly they have to offer performance wise. The latter we will cover in our review, but as part of introducing the new silo, I figured it would be a good idea to talk about what you can expect from you first experience them.
What makes these immediately different is the addition of laces with the TECHFIT collar, creating an even more dynamic fit for players. This is an aspect that of the boots that seems to have come out of left field for some players, but it is a distinguishing feature that adidas felt necessary to create chaos. For those that are a little confused right now, it is PURECONTROL where you will find the complete laceless experience!
As we featured some images on social media, we received several requests for info on how easy it was to slip them on – that TECHFIT collar creates a very snug fit. So, below is a brief intro that we posted on our Instagram page.
The NON STOP GRIP (NSG) finish and TECHFIT lacing system provides a glove-like fit, while the PureCut Sock System – designed to hide the laces – offers an improved aerodynamic effect; a key element for explosive players. The updated SprintFrame outsole delivers traction and stability for high-speed movements.
We obviously have a lot more to come on this boots including a full review. This summer, Gareth Bale will be one of the feature players to watch out for wearing PURECHAOS during Euro16. If you pick up a pair, there is a sweet black perforated boot bag included.
